Darren Potter wants a fresh start when he returns for pre-season training in July.
The midfielder enjoyed a successful first season at MK Dons as he earned rave reviews for his outstanding performances and picked up a hat-trick of awards at the end of the season, including the supporters' Player of the Year.
While the 27-year-old would be keen to replicate his own individual season, he is hoping for a better finish come the end of the 2012/13 campaign.
While others will cling on to the hurt that came in the play-offs, Potter insists he finds it more productive to forget about last year and concentrate on the upcoming season.
Speaking to mkdons.com he said: "It depends what kind of character you are but from a personal point of view I have watched the game back a couple of times but come the start of next season those play-offs will be completely erased from my memory, I will be looking forward.I know other people deal with it differently and use it as a motivation, but for me I want a clean slate."
Every new season brings new opposition and this year Portsmouth, Coventry and Doncaster all drop down to League 1 while Swindon, Crawley, Shrewsbury and Crewe Alexandra all climb up a division
But former Liverpool and Wolves midfielder Potter says it never gets any easier.
"It's always a tough League, the teams coming down are always going to be strong clubs, strong squads and the infrastructure at the teams coming down this season is huge.
"We know it is going to be another tough season but I think from our point of view we have experienced it before whereas one or two of them haven't and it might be a bit of a culture shock because we know what it is about and we can push on next season."
